robthewordsmith: I just discovered that site this morning as I was searching for the lyrics (once again). Fortunately he shows up in New England a lot and I hope to see him in-person someday soon. I must admit that I stay away from political stuff and he is obviously a highly political dude. ...but the lyrics speak for themselves (in my mind, regardless of his intent).

Thanks for the lyrics... "The damage and the dying done" ...some intense stuff there.

Later, my friend from across the sea,

That's where I saw Bruce - once in Keene,NH and once in Manchester. He had a very, very good band - a trio of Bruce, a guy playing a stick (think Tony Levin) and drummer. While Bruce tends to get a little wordy for me at times, I was very impressed the two times I saw him (both going back over 15 years) by the quality of playing. He's well worth checking out, and he does have a lot of great songs.

Yea I caught him once at the Ben & Jerry's music festival in Vt. I think. I recall though that actually I wasn't really much of a fan until I saw him live and he just blew me away. If you want to talk about stage presence my memory says he's the man.
